I finished sewing on the buttons this morning. When I tried the sweater on, I noticed something funny going on with the cowl neck. As you can see in the photo, the neck where the cowl attaches is pretty wide. This is probably due to the fact that I knitted on the cowl neck and the directions said to knit the neck separately and then sew it on afterward. It seemed like a couple of extra steps to me, so I just knit on. Now I may end up doing it over again since it isn't totally looking right to me. But the thought of ripping out the neck is not appealing. Thoughts?
